All mytho addicts - 
There is a new show on a new channel called Dharmakshetra. 


Concept - The main players of Kurukshetra are called to Chitragupta's court and all the characters throw accusations. Chitragupta gives verdict at the end and decides whether they are going to be allowed into heaven

No Idea abt Devika/Yaudehi

What about the other wives - does Drau mention anything about them. I'm assuming they were all living together at some point.
In Drau-Satyabhama convo, Drau mentions ,she served her husbands along with their wives without any malice /jealousy, something like this ...no names taken specifically ; they're all there in Ashramvasika parva and the complexion of all the wives is mentioned Smile
Edit: All wives except Devika, of course Unhappy
@bold - skin color?Confused

Just out of curiosity - has anybody at all been termed 'Guilty'?
If so, what punishment is meted out to them?
Can the ones pronounced as 'guilty' also participate as accusers? 
 
 
 



Shakuni was found guilty...presumably he was sent to naraka and so far he has not come back to accuse anyone else
Ashwi was found guilty too and he was sent back to earthLOL
He had come to speak on his father's behalf when Drona was on the stand...

There is nothing new. they are going by popular consensus. the few new things they tried to do is divorcing ArDi, Kunti saying she will be remembered for loving karna the most etcConfused

I don't think people can blame Bhima for not bringing Hidimbi and Ghatotkacha to Indraprastha for a few reasons. It was not because of the promise Draupadi got from each of her husbands that no other wife be allowed to live in Indraprastha (I haven't found any citations for it anywhere).

1) Bhima was never in love with Hidimbi. Hidimbi pretty much coerced him into marriage because she fell in love with him, and Kunti feeling sorry for her, convinced Bhima to marry her as per rakshasa customs. So she may not have been accepted by Indraprastha citizens, because Bhima never married her as per human customs. Also, Hidimbi agreed to the condition laid down by Kunti and the Pandavas that Bhima would reside with her for one year and then leave. She never had any expectations from him and he never made any false promises to her.

2) Hidimbi and Ghatotkacha could not leave their kingdom. With Hidimba killed, only Hidimbi's son could be the king of their region, so if they both came to Indraprastha, who'd take care of their people? Ghatotkacha was the king of the rakshasa tribe, and he  was quite happy living among his own people. Hidimbi too could never bear to be separated from her son. I don't think Hidimbi and Ghatotkacha would have been happy leaving their own people and living among humans, nor vice versa with Bhima living among the rakshasa tribe. 

Bhima and Hidimbi's separation was based on their mutual agreement before marriage, so Bhima really cannot be blamed for leaving her with the rakshasas, for the same reason Arjuna cannot be blamed for leaving Ulupi and Chitrangada. In the case of Ulupi, Arjuna never even loved her. Their marriage was one-sided based on her attraction and passion. As for Chitrangada, her father put a condition when Arjuna asked for her hand that if he married her, she and any son they had would have to remain in Manipur, as Chitrangada was his only child and he had no male heirs. Arjuna married her in agreement with this condition, so neither he nor Bhima can be blamed for leaving those wives in their natal homes. 


If this allegation is brought up in Dharmakshetra, I hope Bhima defends himself with the above points.

i agree with your points that Bhima didn't love her and even Hidimba knew about this arrangement but still as a husband he did have some duties towards her especially when he has a son with her which as per me he didnt fulfill

I mean ya i get he married her as it was his mother's orders and all but at end of the day he was her husband and father of her child so i guess i do feel bad for Hidimba and Gato

I mean leave alone permanently staying In Indraprastha they aren't even present in important Pandva occasions like Rajsuya Yajna and all
